Ever realized that ran out of diapers just after you finished tossing the old one in the bin, with your screaming baby on the changer in a public restroom? Yes, I’ve been there. That’s when I realized a need an emergency diaper stash in my car at all times so I can avoid most of these little incidents.
When you purchase those cute crib sheets from Wal-Mart or Target, they come packed in a small Velcro bag. I generally use them to store unused light bulbs and other knick knacks. I was browsing the internet when I saw some re-purpose ideas for the bags, and this is what I like the best– an emergency diaper stash bag for the car! It will be perfect for those times when I run out of diapers, forget or leave my diaper bag behind.
This bag is the perfect place for those free samples you’ve got! Here are some ideas for your emergency diaper stash:
- Small bottle of Desitin/Ointment
- Package of sample wipes
- Extra pacifier or teether
- Toy or small book
Things you can add if you have space left:
- Sample Formula Packages (4 oz.)
- Couple of snacks
- A pair of tiny shirt/pants rolled into a tight knot
- A pair of socks
You can usually fit your emergency bag in the door compartment of your car or in the glove compartment. This will hopefully help you out if you’re ever in a bind so that you are not totally stranded.
